She may have been baptised at St. Mary's Cathedral in Wellington. The Cathedral was destroyed by fire in 1898. Records from that time are held in private collection.

If you Google BDM NZ or go to https://www.bdmhistoricalrecords.dia.govt.nz/ and do a search you should get this 1867/16330 Lahiff Catherine Eliza John - Order Product

It should be a birth certificate.
